New Zealand was once home to both the North and South Island kokako, easily distinguished by their differing wattle colours; orange in the South Island species and blue in the North. The South Island kokako currently has a conservation status of ‘data deficient’, moving from previously being thought to be extinct, as an accepted sighting was made in 2007 near Reefton (with the last accepted sighting in 1967). The kokako are known for their haunting melodies – a unique addition to the dawn chorus. They struggle from mammalian predation, but survive in sanctuaries and pest management areas, where they feed mainly on a variety of fruit and leaves.

For your Bang’n kokako you have the choice of traditional, koru, or fern inlay.

Your Bang’n kokako is designed and made in New Zealand. Constructed from weathering steel, your kokako will weather naturally, and settle into your landscape over time – forming a beautiful rusty patina.

Description

New Zealand has been a geographically isolated island nation for many millions of years. This isolation, and a lack of native land mammals, lead to the evolution of the unique array of bird species that call New Zealand home. Many of these species have suffered from the introduction of mammalian predators, such as stoats, rats, possums and cats.

Your purchase of a Bang’n bird helps to ensure that the native species of New Zealand stay in the forefront of our minds, in all regions of New Zealand. As you enjoy your Bang’n bird settling into your landscape, spend some time reflecting on what you might be able to do to ensure that our surviving species can flourish as they once did.
